  1. Drag view / jump half screen

    When editing a track (cutting out unnecessary repetitions, breaths, and such) the playhead sweeps over the region to be cut out, so one must scroll back to get the relevant part in view. Doing this with the scrollbar at the bottom is not easy - dragging the slider is too fast, clicking on the empty part of the scrollbar is too slow.
    I see two good solutions to this problem which could be implemented simultaneously:
    1. Some key + mouse drag transforms the cursor into a hand (like Space in Adobe Photoshop, or the Hand tool in Acrobat Reader), and…

  2. Move all markers 10-15 seconds earlier

    USE CASE: Recording in-person customer interviews with your mobile app -- which is awesome by the way.

    PROBLEM: my customer says something great. I add a marker. When I play back the audio from the marker, I always have to go backwards 10-15 seconds, because I set the marker after I realize something great was said, not before it. :) I have to do that with every marker made with the mobile device.

    OPPORTUNITY: I believe you would be the only recording application which actually solves this problem for journalist, marketers and others.

    if you solve the problem I would…

  3. Using Logitech MX Master 2S thumb wheel with Hindenburg Journalist

    The ability of using the thumb wheel would be a nice feature for scrolling the audio. However, currently the rolling of the thumb wheel of the Logitech MX Master 2S mouse only moves the scroll box on the scrollbar, while the waveform display stays at the same position.

    Maybe there is just a small setting to be reconfigured for this to work.

  4. "Selection Mode"

    When first cutting a recorded interview, usually there is no need for selecting and dragging regions. The main activity is selecting areas for editing, splitting areas and cutting. However, the primary function of the mouse button is still the selecting of regions - you have to go to some empty place (often the only option is the thin area* separating two tracks) for the cursor to change into selection mode.

    So it would be very useful to have a shortcut (like SomeKey+mouse drag) to put the mouse cursor in selection mode, or even a dedicated Selection Mode, when only the…

  5. Export all markers as text file

    Dear Hindenburg staff,

    many thanks for your great product. I often use it while putting together pieces for German public radio.

    I have a very simple request. Would it be possible to make all markers exportable as text files, not just the chapter markers?

    I often use markers for notetaking. I know that you can find them in the nhsx-File, so I'm wondering how difficult it would be to export them directly in the software.

    Reaper, for example, can export its marker list as both txt and csv. Basically, at the moment, I listen to my recordings in Reaper, and…

  6. Reverse a section

    I play songs for broadcast that have sections with explicit language. Would be great if I could reverse those sections so the music could stay in key and on tempo.

  7. Improved Rehearse with loop and fixed focus

    I use the Rehearse function all the time, but setting the correct boundaries for the final cut often requires dozens of replays. It would be nice to have the option to specify a "post-roll" value, and have the Rehearse function loop endlessly through the selected area from pre-roll to post-roll.
    The other part of my suggestion concerns focus. While rehearsing, one fiddles with the boundary markers, so its gets a bit annoying when they get out of view while the playhead sweeps through. So an option to lock the view on any part of the audio (the selected area, or…

  10. View > Cue Points

    The menu item View > Markers does not show Cue Points which is a pity. I propose inserting a new menu item View > Cue Points which shows a list of all cue points.

  11. Tooltip for Stereo (L/R) panning

    This is a rather simple but helpful one:

    Aso of now (build 2182), we can achieve left/right stereo panning by using a simple slider. That's great.
    But to do this precisely or symmetrically, one has to count pixels on that slider.
    I'd like to see some sort of simple tooltip to help us with that. Something like:
    100% Left ... 1% Left ... Center (or 0%) ... 1% Right ... 100% Right

    That's all.

  12. Allow an option to publish to Spreaker

    There is other services than Souncloud. Add Spreaker to publish will be great ;-)

  15. Detect and delete silence

    When working with separate tracks of several remote guests on a podcast or talk show it is essential to delete "silent" parts of the track when someone isn't talking. Sometimes these parts are not silent at all (because of a lot of background noise or leaking audio from headphones), but that makes it even more important to have them removed.

    I would like Hindi to be able to identify and insert breakpoints around these sections automatically and remove them upon request. That would make my life soooo much easier.

  16. Stem Export

    Hi there. I really enjoy working with Hindenburg. One feature I would love to see is stem export. I do all my edits, tweak eq, compression and all that, but would like to export the stems of the project for archiving, as I delete my RAW files once a project is done.

    Thanks

  17. Text editor/scroller

    I would like a built-in basic text editor for writing a script that would then be saved automatically with the audio files for a particular project.
    It would be useful if the script could be scrolled across the screen autocue-style while recording in Hindenburg.

  18. Fix "save as"

    Currently when I use an existing project as a template for a new one Hindenburg only adds a new session file ("Project.nhsx"), not a new File directory ("Project Files"). That makes it impossible (or at least risky to the uninformed user) to save the new session file in another directory. It makes it also harder to share a project, as the File directory is cluttered with files which may or may not be needed after "saving as".

  19. Color Coding

    I wish there was an option to color code clips. That way it would be easier to identify splits you want to come back to.
